Yesterday RapidAPI announced support for GraphQL APIs to its and has published the first batch of them. Right now the platform offers just a few GraphQL-based APIs including GitHub, GitLab, Yelp, Reddit or Hacer News, with a lot more coming soon.
RapidAPI deciding to provide its marketplace users a choice between native GraphQL and REST API is a very clear signal that that GraphQL’s market position is on a rise and will play an important role in the future of APIs.
Developers using RapidAPI will get access to GraphQL-native experience allowing them to explore schema, develop, build & test their queries along with the same benefits known for RapidAPI users from its REST API experience:
The GraphQL Editor is a supportive tool for both advanced GraphQL users as well as those taking their first steps with GraphQL APIs. Our all-in-one development environment for GraphQL will help you build, manage & deploy your GraphQL API much faster thanks to dozens of built-in micro features.
